Very impressive, Michael.  The new early 20th century provenance must have made you particularly happy.  Did you discover that yourself or did the seller know?

Seller did NOT know.   Wink   I put a lot of time and effort into provenance hunting.  For example, two nights ago, I started trawling through my near complete run of Spink Numismatic Circulars.  Within a few minutes, I spotted in a 1970 Num Circ the Octavian/Curia denarius that I'd just bought at NYINC.  0-50 in 5 minutes!

That sounds exhilarating! Maybe one of these days I will get into provenance research—I just don’t have the time or resources now, unfortunately. There was an interesting essay about an old provenance in the inaugural issue of Koinon, and I believe the author is working on another.  It was a great read.

Hello all, 

It's been a while since I announced new coins in my gallery.  I posted several coins last night: a smattering of early bronzes and imperatorials, many with interesting provenances.  These are in addition to several coins that I posted a few months ago without any announcement.  Please browse and enjoy.  My gallery link is in the footer of this post.

The 2x Litra is particularly nice for that type.  Quite an impressive group in 2019.  Thanks for posting them.

Thanks PMah. That is one of the nicer examples that I've seen of the type.  I was fortunate to find it shortly after listing.

I added to my gallery a recently acquired Lepidus imperatorial denarius to which I've restored a wonderful, old provenance:

Also this month, several other additions are scattered among the albums. 

Enjoy!

Sweet => congrats, Carausius ... yah, that new addition is a total winner!

 Thumbs Up

Ummm, but hey, it's no AE Aes Grave Sextans Scallop, but it's still a cool addition to your amazing collection (congrats again, my ol' coin-friend)

Thank you, Steve!  The new coin is a scarce reverse die, with "C. CAESAR"  inscription.   Surfaces are a bit rough, but it's well-centered and complete on a large flan for this issue.

And we all love that Ex SteveP scallop shell aes grave sextans!!

Yesterday, I added to my gallery a pleasing and well-centered M. Porcius Cato quinarius with a 35-year-old provenance (which I hope to take further back!).
